Topical

Living in the Middle East means that we meet people on a daily basis who have a different accent to our own. Local UK dialects can be heard in all the shopping malls and coffee shops in Dubai along with accents from different Countries too, Ozzies, South Africans, Indians, Chinese, Russian, the list goes on and on.

We all have an accent that is unique to the region we hailed from.  Why should this be a problem with the children in our lives?  basically it shouldn't.   If we wanted our children educated in our local dialect then we really shouldn't be living here.  If you feel that you are worried because your child is being educated by an Asian, and are worried they are going to pick up an Indian dialect, then I suggest you ring Emirates (as I am sure that is who you will want to fly with) and arrange a single ticket back to your home country.

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of rubbish I hear from expats who are based in the UAE, I suppose it makes the world go round, but a word of advice, think before you press that *post* button.
